"You guys are the old dogs."
is what started it... an off-handed remark by a son to his dad and dad's buddies who often ran the amazing cross-country course at Northview Church.
Embracing the name, Mark designed a logo and Marty printed some shirts... and that was supposed to be it.
Since then we've had A LOT of questions! Can I get one of those shirts? Can I join The Old Dog Running Club?
The Old Dog Running Club was initially an exclusive, closed group... because there were only a handful of shirts printed. But, the demand to join in has created an opportunity...
Marty and Mark have decided to open the club to new members. All you have to do to join is purchase one of these awesome shirts or hats. And 100% of the proceeds of The Old Dog Running Club merchandise will go directly to maintenance and improvements of Northview Church Championship Cross Country Course.
Located in Carmel IN, the course plays host to:
- USATF XC meets and Masters XC Nationals
- Big East Collegiate Conference Championships
- Serves as the home course to IUPUI and Butler University XC
- numerous local middle school and high school invitationals
- Carmel Pup XC (4th and 5th graders)
What's more, when there aren't meets going on, the pristine well-marked course is open to anyone... everyday!
So if you're an Old Dog, or just an Old Dog in spirit, or you just want to support this incredible resource for the running community, pick up and shirt or a hat, and represent the spirit of
The Old Dog Running Club.
100% of the proceeds of The Old Dog Running Club merchandise will go directly to maintenance and improvements of Northview Church Championship Cross Country Course.
